Weevil-inflicted losses on cotton lint and seed have amounted to more than $11, billion since 1909. This loss has amounted to enough fiber to provide every male in the U.S. 14 years or older with 764 shirts apiece; enough cottonseed meal rEpro- duce 538 pounds of meat for every man, woman, and child in the U.S.; and enough food fats and oils to supply the en- tire U.S. population for a whole year. The weevil eradication plan has been submitted to Agri- culture Secretary Earl Butz, who was authorized by the 1973 Agriculture and Consumer Protection Act to carry out the program. If approved by him, the plan would be put into ef- fect in specified zones across the Cotton Belt for an eight- year period. Cotton bale packaging is now being improved at a rapid rate. Most spectacular change has been the transition to a uni- versal bale with a minimum 28- pound density, it was explained. Developed by a special Coun- cil committee and introduced to the trade in 1973, it is re- placing the five different types of bales previously produced and offers savings in handling and transportation costs. The Council also is" taking an active role in dealing with byx- xinosis and flammability, two problems described as clouding an otherwise bright outlook for cotton. Through its Industrywide Byssinosis Committee, the Council is now collecting infor- mation available both in this country and abroad on every aspect of byssinosis. Thiswill be used in working with govern- ment agencies toward reason- able and practical standards for cotton dust in processing es- tablishments. Solutions to cotton's flam- mability problem involve: (1) research to develop more ef- fective and.less expensive fire resistant treatments for cotton fabrics, and (2) development of standards and test methods which are reasonable and equit- able, it was explained. Cotton Incorporated, fin- anced through growers' dollar- a-bale program, is placing re- MINUTES OF REGULAR MEETING OF FLORALA CITY COUNCIL PRESENT: Mayor Joe R, Ev- I I I i arts, Councilmembers: Ander- CARD OF THANKS son, Jones, Windham, Mickler and Hutchinson. City Clerk: I would like to take this Linda S. Cassady. Visitors means to thank the employees as shown by Guest Register. and staff of Florala Memorial Hospital for their kindness and services rendered me while I was a patient in the hospital. And also a special thank you to all my friends for their kind- ness. Mrs. Lucy Campbell 2-28-1tpd The meeting was called to order by Mayor Evans. Mr. Kim George led the group in prayer. The minutes of the regular meeting of 11 February, 74 were read and there being no corrections, were adopted as read. A police report for the period 11 Feb 74 through 24 Feb 74 was given to the Council. Mayor Evans reported that Sergeant Billy Rogers had re- turned from the FBI con- ference and reported a very successful meeting. The Council entered into a discussion pertaining to the rental or purchase of a new police car. The pros and cons of a rental vehicle were thrashed out. It was decided that further investigation into the matter was needed. Mayor Evans explained to the Council that repairs are needed to City Hall; namely, termite control, repair to floor at po- lice station entrance, and roof- ing repairs to both City Hall and Post Office. A motion was made by Councilwoman Mickler and seconded by Councilman Anderson that the Mayor make arrangements for the repair to the floor of the police sta- tion and the termite treatment. Bids are to be received for the roofing repair. Motion car- ried with all in favor. Mayor Evans then asked the Council to consider paying, as a fringe benefit, the health insur- ance premiums for the City em- ployees under a Group Health Coverage. After much discus- sion, Councilman Windbam made a motion thepremiumsbe paid. Seconded by Councilwo- man Hutchinson and carried with all in favor. Councilwoman Hutchinson posed the problem of loose stray dogs roaming the City. It was decided the Police De- partment would enforce more rigidly the disposing of problem dogs without tags. Mayor Evans questioned the Council about a much-needed Civil Defense program for the City. It was brought out that Mr. James York is the present CD Director for the City, but that someone should be designa- ted as alternate to coordinate with Mr. York and the City. The Council was asked to re- commend an individual at the next meeting. " Councilman Anderson asked about the Cemetery Board and their proposed increase in the amount of 20' x 20' cemetery lots. A motion was made by Councilman Windham and se- conded by Councilman Anderson that the City Clerk contact the Chairman of the Cemetery Board and ask that she meet with the Council members be- fore any lots be increased in price. Councilman Anderson and Jones asked about thepromised improvements to Lake Jackson in reference to new fishing piers being built. This is to be looked into further. Mayor Evans informed the Council that Mr. Frank Jack- son will be in Florala on 26 February and asked thattbey be available to visit with him. There being no further busi- ness to come before the Council, a motion was made by Councilwoman Hutchinson and seconded by CouncilwomanMi- ckler to adjourn. Carried with all in favor.

Another report noted that better public understanding and appreciation of the industry is essential to its continued pro- gress. To help foster such understanding, the Council con- ducts a communications pro- gram directed toward opinion leaders and the public. The basic message of the program stresses cotton's im- portance in conserving energy, in providing a new protein food source, in contributing to the nation's economy, in increas- ing its productivity, and in res- ponding to the needs and con- cersn of all Americans. The group also heard a re- view of the Council's 1973 Washington activities dealing with the new farm bill, agri- cultural appropriations, and minimum wage.

A small monthly fee will be charg- ed for home and commercial garbage dumping. The fee for dumping building materials and debris will be on a per load basis. The Paxton Council states that it finds this action neces- sary due to the sudden increase in the use of the pit by area and out of state residents. This is felt to be primarily due to other garbage pits being either closed down or fees charged for their use.

Adv. by Frank Jack- son, Opp, Alabama THE GLOVER MAUSOLEUM ADDED TO REGISTER The Glover Mausoleum, lo- cated in Riverside Cemetery in Demopolis, has been added to the National Register of His- toric Places, the Alabama His- torical Commission announced today. W. Warner Floyd, executive director of the state preserva- tion agency, said that the mau- soleum is one of the largest and most imposing tombs in the state. It was built m 1856 in the Greek Revival style and contains burial places for thirty people. The brick structure t~ square, stuccoed over and painted white. The stucco is scored to give the appearance of large rectangular blocks. An ornate iron fence of Gothic design surrounds the mauso- leum, and still bears the date 1858. The Glover Vault was con- structed by Mary Ann Diven Glover, the second wife of Al- len Glover, some time after his death in 1840. Glover was one of the founders of the city of Demopolis who came to the area in 1819 from South Carolina. Glover traded with the Indians and slowly established a great planting,interest. Floyd said that the Glover Mausoleum is the first land- mark structure of its kind to be included from Alabama on the nationwide National Register. The Register now contains 133 entries from Alabama including such diverse historical attrac- tions as the site of Fort Mires in Baldwin County, the Boll Weevil Monument in Coffee County, and elegant residences in the Twickenham Historic District in Huntsville.
